    Not even a delay at UMass.

    Went to heavy snow in Amherst, now moderate... Measurable accums already if someone were so inclined.

    Over 7" even after the rain. Few pingers mixing in now in the better echoes.
  4. Mid levels were moving quickly as it passed over Belchertown. Breezy at the surface, but no damage. Descending the east slope it looked pretty good though. That orange blip on the velocity data is not noise I don't think, it persisted along the front for a few scans in W Deerfield.
  5. BOX was showing base velocities 75+ MPH near Fisher's Island (base vel image below) . Some amount of SRV evident, unclear the degree to which it might have been rotating, but impressive regardless.

    Awesome! You're a brave man ducking ropes on new boards in October.

    Pretty awesome pics came out of there yesterday with 4" new and 2100' open. That was the place to be.
  8. https://www.wwlp.com/weather/weather-news/tornado-touchdown-confirmed-in-hardwick/1554987823 The new UMass X band got a decent look at the Hardwick tornado. We have some partial beam blockage from the Pelham hills to the east, which decreases the signal quality a little bit, but all the same the rotation signature was pretty clear.

    They have other kind of holds at Magic
  10. Yeah, quite a bit in S Amherst too. None here at UMass. Cool looking sky and a nice updraft evident.
  11. Agree. Seeing white up top from 91 is an annual way I mark the seasons and it never fails to put a big dumb grin on my face. I am fairly sure that if you squint at this image you'll see Camels Hump and Mansfield on the horizon here. On a clearer day you can definitely see them well. There's also a decent view of some of the Whites from the observation tower at the top.
  12. Hiked up Ascutney on the Weathersfield trail today. 53 with thin OVC at the trailhead and cooler at the top for sure, though no real breeze. About a 6 mi loop and fairly strenuous with a 2100' rise and some notable terrain.
  13. Nice one. Just reinstalled a Doppler radar on Orchard Hill after 5 years without one. Should come online this fall.

    Nice. Feel like I've seen your pics before... in person
